Maneuvering the access gangway is performed manually. Simple, compact tension spring balances make all movements easy. A slight push or pull positions the gangway for safe access. Each unit is equipped with a locking mechanism for storage in the vertical position.
Tubular handrails with midrails on each side of the stair and optional safety cage meet the criteria for a fall prevention system.
Neoprene bumpers to eliminate damage to the trucks or railcars being serviced.
Axles have self-aligning, permanently lubed bearings for years of lasting service. Tension springs are enclosed in the side panels to prevent pinch points and corrosion to the springs.
Our gangways come standard with non-skid grip strut walking surfaces. Optional welded stops prevent the bridge from traveling beyond a predetermined position.
A variety of finishes is available: standard safety yellow enamel, hot dipped galvanized, uncoated or anodizing for aluminum models. We also offer construction of the access gangways in aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel and fiber glass. A wide selection of access gangways is available including folding, extension and self-leveling stairs.
